At the end of the day, we each have our own needs and wants (and budgets), so really, this new vs used camera gear debate comes down to individual differences.
Personally, I’ve had excellent luck buying used gear over the years. But I also know some folks that have had a nightmare of a time with used gear they purchased online.
By the same token, some folks have the funds to buy brand-new gear, so used cameras might not be something to even consider.
If you do buy used, heed the advice to buy from a reputable source like MPB. And if you buy new, shop around for the best possible prices. Either way, you want to maximize your bang for your buck.
